The State University of New York

The University at Albany is part of the State University of New York (SUNY), the nation’s largest comprehensive public system of higher education. Since its founding in 1948, SUNY has evolved to meet the changing needs of New York’s students, communities, and workforce.

SUNY is committed to serving as the state’s strongest economic and quality-of-life driver and providing quality education at an affordable price to New Yorkers and students from across the nation and around the world through its unwavering imperatives: to learn, to search, to serve.

The University at Albany exemplifies SUNY’s commitment to broad access by providing an excellent education to a diverse and inclusive community of students.

Our strategic plan holds significant potential for alignment with the themes articulated by Chancellor Kristina Johnson in her first State of the University System Address (January 2018), which are: Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Individualized Education, Sustainability, and Strategic Partnerships. We will seek to create synergies with these themes as we bring the University at Albany’s core priorities into action.
